I started recommending the Mr. Pants series when we'd only read the first two books. The first one cracked me up, but the second one didn't feel like it quite came together - despite some very funny parts. This one, though? This is GOLD. McCormick tells this story with so much confidence, setting up jokes early in the book that pay off chapters later. Chapter Five is one of the best things I've ever read in comics, and Chapter Seven is a sweet fulfillment of little Grommy's heartfelt desire. Siblings CAN be nice to each other! Even if they're cats.

The plot, in case you need more convincing: Mr. Pants, Grommy, and Foot Foot (3 cats who live with their mom as though they were human children) have BIG plans for Halloween. The annual Zombie Tag game is going to be great! Trick or Treating is going to be great! All they need are costumes, which Mommy is NOT allowed to make this year. Not after last year's debacle. ("I don't even know what I'm supposed to be!") But the costume shop is cleaned out by the time they get there. And Mommy's bought them all airplane tickets to visit grandparents. WHAT?! Add a freak snowstorm that strands them in the airport and things aren't going to end well. Or are they?

If you only read one book in this series, make it this one.

Completely hilarious.
The Mr Pants series by Scott McCormick and R.H. Lazzell has a charm all it's own. With relentless humor that does not pander to it's audience (which is around 3rd grade and up reading level wise), these short graphic-style chapter books are great to share with the whole family.

This third Mr. Pants books finally won me over to the series after my hesitant endorsement of the first one (and somewhat warmer reception of the second). The sibling antics are less mean-spirited and more mischievous in this volume and the exaggerated silliness is more human. It's definitely a series that many young readers will enjoy.
